The New York Times Shopping Snap Shots {byrdie bell & i assisted it}

You may know her as a member of the T Magazine “Nifty 50”, or from Martin Scorseses’ Rolling Stone’s documentary Shine a Light. Byrdie Bell is great and I had the fabulous opportunity to work with her on this past Thursday Styles Shopping snapshot.

I assisted photographer Lee Clower on the feature. Seems like Ms. Bell and I have a few things in common. I love her choices in clothing and stores. I can’t wait to check out her vintage hideaway.

Hope y’all enjoy the behind the scene snaps and check out the feature. It was such a fantastic experience. I hope there will be more in the future!

iPhone Whore {the fashionista app do’s and don’ts & how bloggers are hooked up}

While I am still somewhat shocked that I made the switch to team iPhone, I could not be more glad that I did. The device is SO fashionista friendly. It truly keeps me up to date and in the know with the touch of a button.

What are my favorite fashion applications? I have 4. WWD blast, Net a porter “What’s New”, Style.com & Shopstyle. With these four you get news, shopping & style. It is the perfect combination.

The phone gets better? I can even stay up to date with blogs via the Bloglovin’ application. Bloggers, we are hooked up. Even WordPress has it’s own application. I’ll stop before I get heart palpitations.

 

Jason Wu Fall 2011 RTW

I love this collection. After the many somber and depressing shows today (cough cough Peter Som), Wu’s show was more than refreshing. Ladies and gentlemen, Jason Wu has done it again. Each and every garment was different, but each bearing a perfect silhouette.  The makeup was beyond (shout out to Brettie, you go girl!) and each model conveyed a sense of true elegance (with an edge). The sunglasses and lace head pieces were additionally a nice touch. Sorry about the Wu gaga fest, but I must say I’m impressed.

Chanel Spring 2011 Couture

Of course Karl unveils another perfect Chanel collection. The collection epitomized delicate sparkle. As Lagerfeld said himself, “I was sick of all those Eiffel Towers, sick of all those violent colors.” The silhouettes were graceful, the chiffons were all built on a sequined legging. In addition, all of the models wore ballet flats down the runway. Lagerfeld’s use of a neutral pallet was refreshing and effective. But the collection still captured the essence of Chanel has a brand. It was timeless and innovative. My two favorite looks from the collection were: the structured pink dress with ruffled skirt and black bow (photographed above), and black jacket with white collar and sequined leggings (photographed below).

Tim Gunn Teams Up With Weight Watchers!

Weight Watchers is bringing on Tim Gunn as their fashion consultant! Oh yea. Tim is there to help those on the weight loss journey look fabulous while doing it. He says, “I am so proud to be working with Weight Watchers on this extraordinary project and was so inspired by the stories of wonderful success. Nothing makes me happier than providing guidance and tips to help people look great as they lose weight and get healthier. If getting fashion right were easy, everyone would look fabulous, but it can be challenging. The combination of the PointsPlus program and providing helpful styling tips is great because it helps people celebrate their new look and recalibrate their thinking about style, while finding an enhanced self-confidence.” Oh damn Tim, you’re siked. But really, good for him. This is exactly what he did on Thursday night at the Weight Watcher’s showcase in New York.

Sneak Peek: Zoe’s Collection


Breaking news: Zoe styles her upcoming collection for WWD! Very exciting. Her collection will feature outer wear, shoes and handbags! Prices will range from $250-$700 (for a full tuxedo look). Zoe comments on her line “I’d imagine everybody is expecting something from me that’s kind of a Seventies, uberboho-glam kind of thing, and, you know, very accessorized. And it’s not.” Hmm. Interesting! She has also commented that she envisions her line on racks next to Wang & Marc by Marc. I have a feeling I’m going to like this one.
